The University of New Hampshire wants to highlight student success stories. One way of doing this has been through the Create Your Own Story initiative which features students who, in their own way, have strived to make the most of their time at UNH. Each of their stories are different, yet they all share a common theme - a deep desire to claim their education.
Our purpose in sharing these stories is to encourage other students to approach their time at UNH with intention, curiosity, and personal drive. Hopefully by reading some of these stories, others will be inspired to make the most of their time here and create new stories that are rich, interesting, and unique.
To nominate a student who is creating their own story at UNH, please complete the form below by January 23, 2018. Questions? Please contact Curt Kenoyer.
